Run ((orienteering)) 20:00 [3] *** 2.0 km (10:00 / km)

Very casual walk/jog around some model event controls. I suspect the model event area was chosen more for not being on the final map, and having access to suitable parking, than for its similarity to the final terrain - it was rather scrappy and green, with almost none of the very open forests we saw on the way in. Main lesson learned is that green is mostly low deciduous regrowth (unlike the other days, when it's often been closely planted spruce) and is less crashable than on previous days. Didn't want to push things too hard physically; my back was on the edge a bit before yesterday and the body only has to hold out for one more day...

Saw numerous people walking into the forest holding swords, shields and similar paraphenalia. I don't think they were there for the orienteering.

Now that yesterday's splits have seen the light of day, it seems that I was saved by the low-visibility 13 and 14; hit both of them well and gained 10 places across the pair.
